If lit, it means that a DTC or diagnostic trouble code is stored in the computer.
Have it scanned or get the DTC interpreted by looking up the code in the service manual.

HAND-HELD SCAN TOOLS Although stored codes may be read through the flashing of the CHECK ENGINE or SERVICE ENGINE SOON lamp, the use of hand-held scan tools such as Ford's Self-Test Automatic Readout (STAR) tester or the second generation SUPER STAR II tester or their equivalent is highly recommended. There are many manufacturers of these tools; the purchaser must be certain that the tool is proper for the intended use. The scan tool allows any stored faults to be read from the engine controller memory. Use of the scan tool provides additional data during troubleshooting, but does not eliminate the use of the charts. The scan tool makes collecting information easier, but an operator familiar with the system must correctly interpret the data.

You should first check the oil level and coolant levels, if all is good,,,go to autozine and they will hook up a code reader to your car to help determine what the problem is.

It comes on for many reasons. Maybe a sensor or an electrical component failed. However there is nothing to be alarmed about. If it was something major, The car wouldn't start. When you get home I would suggest using an OBD2 code scanner. I don't know if you have an AutoZone near you, but they have a free tool loan program. All you have to do is leave a deposit and they will refund it when the tool is returned. Eric

I am driving chrysler town and country 1997 and this mornind the light check engine soon went on. What should be the problem and should i drive a car now?


Check engine mean that some system of engine is faulty. Check oil and coolant levels and if they are ok - basically you can drive your car.
Try to find someone with diagnostic scanner for your car to clarify type of error.

My check track light came on today in my car what does it mean its a lincoln town car 2000


Hello

When the Check Engine light is turned on the computer control unit (called the PCM) has sensed a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system. When this happens you will seldom feel the car engine run any different. There are about 200 possible faults that turn the Check Engine light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free.

92 Mercury wont go in reverse


they are not related. The check engine light just means you are not passing emissions right now.
The reverse issue sounds like a tranny replace or overhaul.

My battery light is staying on in my 92 lincoln towncar


Get out a volt meter, With the car not started check the battery you should be getting round 12volts.

Now turn the engine and check the terminals again you should be seeing about 13-14 volts. If its high it means the regulator on the Alternater has gone and it wont charge the battery because to much going to it and that would cause other eletrical issues, and if its low your looking round the same problem with the Alt.

Also check the serpenteine*sp is not to worn as it wouldnt be turning the pulleys as good and would cause issues as things can't work correctly.
